    That's a very nice color, I like it a lot. I'm starting to like the 5 door more than the 3 door now for some reason.

    Congrates fellow Astra member. Now you just have to convince the wife that you need this as a daily drive. Maybe try the excuse that the Equinox is safer.

    I wish

    Her commute is 110 miles round-trip. Mine's 14. Seeing as how the ASTRA is nearly twice as fuel-efficient, she wins.

    I do have a hankering to trade the 'Nox in on another one though...

    Nope, $65 accessory. Well worth it to appease a 16-month-old who hates the blinding sun.

    that movie that just came out on video--- Vantage Point...
    theres the chase scene...
    car chase--- the car is an Astra- though in the movie its a Chevy Astra (filmed in Spain?).

    The Astra is also sold as a Chevy in Mexico.

    We have the "privacy glass" on the 'Nox too. It gives just the right amount of shade. The AURA was clear all around and he hated it on sunny days.
